So what is ‘White Magic’? White magic is ‘good’ magic, it is associated with a right hand path [power from GOD(s) and not yourself].

I am not a White Magician, but the exercise in this article is to give White magic a fair review. What is ‘good’ then?

As a Buddhist my general go to concept for good is ‘do no harm’. Non Buddhists may resort to the ‘Golden rule’ in one form or another – treat others as you would be treated (an ethic manifest before the comprehension of masochism I suppose).

Wicca, in its various flavors, commonly teaches a ‘law of threes’: that which you do magically or non magically, will come back to you three times. In my experience of life I see little evidence for this personally.

That ‘law of threes’ may have come from Occult groups that taught it to initiates to keep them controlled, understanding as the initiate grew in knowledge and competence they would outgrow that concept.

But many ‘white light’ Wiccans take the ‘Law of three’ as a concrete law of reality. And the paradox of course is that if you make an idea part of your identity – between your confirmation bias and ability to hack reality – you will make it true!

But that’s getting off track. What does it mean to be a ‘good magician’?

Here’s the good part. If you take being ‘good’ as critically important, it’s because you take the magic really seriously, like you would a gun. And this is fantastic for your power and intensity of belief!

And so you may only use your magic to heal people or help people, because that’s the good thing to do. Because your source of power requires ‘good’ for the magic to even work perhaps, depending on your paradigm.

What about helping yourself? Here, there’s a duality. Some consider self serving magic to be a no no. Others understand it as neutral or even good. The difference I suppose is the degree to which your magic is tied to the worship of God(s).

If you are channeling the power of God to do good works, you don’t do magic on your own behalf – you surrender to the will of God(s) instead – in this way ‘self serving’ magic is ‘evil’. Because magic for yourself belies doubt in God serving your best interests!

But is “GOOD” limited to helping others? What about improving yourself? As a Buddhist should I not use magic to realize enlightenment? As a Christian or Wiccan should you not use magic to elevate your consciousness to be more compassionate or ‘Christ-like’?

I did read some of a book on Tantra. And popularly Tantra is associated with sex with a prolonged orgasm that does not result in cumming. But that wasn’t what struck me when I read the book. It took a Buddhist concept of the essential emptiness of self (if you don’t follow, it’s okay) and uses that to suggest your emptiness is identical to that of Buddha’s and your sex partner’s emptiness is also the same as Buddha’s – so when having sex – you become Buddha making love to Buddha. Or in chaos magic language, you are invoking Buddha and using sex magic to engineer realization of enlightenment!

As a Christian especially, the notion of sex magic is too carnal to be ‘good’. Wiccans may enjoy richer duality on the matter.

As a Christian I would suggest you check you the article being linked now. On Christian magic!

What can a Christian (or comparable right hand path, Goddess, Krishna..etc) do to become more ‘Christ like’? Invocation is key, don’t just pray – invite the God/Goddess to come INTO YOU! And set your imagination free. When I invoke entities it’s like I see them and hear them – but in my mind, not with my eyes or ears. See if this is possible for you.

Catholics pray the rosary, this can actually be a powerful meditative practice. But the key is that you must keep your MIND on the mantra or chant, it it wavers, start again at bead #1.

The simple Zen mediation is one of sitting comfortably, back bolt upright, palms upward, left fingers in the palm of the right hand with thubs almost, but not touching. Breathe in such a way as your gut expands and retracts. And count your breaths on the exhale, fill your mind with the number of the count, as you count your exhaled breaths 1 to 10, but if you mind wanders! You must start again the count, from one. Good luck reaching breath number 3!

What benefits are there from meditation? Transformation! Literally actually, science confirms that meditation can physically alter your brain. Meditation introduces you to a self that is not your thoughts but rather is an observer of thought – and this is an experience of a self that is NOT your ego! Also, very important is that the simple returning to number one in your count when your mind does wander, and refocusing¬† – this is a proof of concept! Whenever you are being negative or hateful, you can ‘return to focus’, you need not dwell in the negativity.

The problem with White magic, isn’t the good, it’s the bad that often comes with the good. The judgment of others, the being self righteous, and the being intolerant of people with different values, or even simply different paradigms. The “law of threes” is absent in most magical paradigms!

Myself, I don’t consider myself Black, White or Grey. I have ethics, and I try to do no harm. But that leaves more possibilities than you might think. Would I cast a love spell on a closeted Gay person I don’t like? Yes! Because as painful as that experience could be for them, and as much as I may revel in their pain – however the victim deals with the situation – it is a LEARNING experience that will leave them wiser, and thereby I am doing no harm….?

And as Chaos magicians, we are often anathema to anyone too strongly attached to a truth or a ‘one right way’. It’s why there’s commonly contempt in Chaos magic circles for ‘fluffy’ White Light anything, and the contempt is mutual. A clash of paradigms more than ethics or even morals.
